Parliament Winter Session Live Updates: Opposition parties on Friday once again resorted to sloganeering in both the Houses of the Parliament, leading to disruptions. As soon as the Rajya Sabha met at 11 am to transact business, the Opposition MPs created ruckus on the floor. Chairman Venkaiah Naidu urged the protesting MPs to allow the House the function, but the MPs didn't heed the request. In the Lok Sabha as well, the Opposition created ruckus but the House later resumed the discussion on Covid-19 management in the country. Responding to a question, Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said that all states and UTs were asked for data related to deaths due to oxygen shortage in the second wave. "19 states responded, only Punjab reported four 'suspected' deaths due to oxygen shortage," he said.
